What's cool about it:

  • You’re a cockroach! Dingy household appliances and vile rodents become deadly traps as you scurry through a seedy, dilapidated San Francisco bar.
  • Explore more than 800 navigable screens assembled from high-resolution renderings of real-life objects and animals.
  • Unravel a dark, Kafkaesque mystery brought to life with live-action video and spine-tingling music.


You are Roger Samms. All your life you’ve been the little man, the square peg, the forgotten man. With a rat-hole apartment, dead-end job, and an unbearable landlord breathing down your neck, you’ve finally had enough. Armed with a briefcase of stolen cash and a plane ticket to Mexico, you had the perfect plan. If it wasn’t for an accident involving a mysterious family keepsake, you may have pulled it off. Unfortunately, you’ve unleashed something crazy, something weird, like a twisted spell. Baaad mojo. Finding yourself suddenly transformed into a cockroach, you’ll need to brave spiders, a killer cat and a myriad of other perils if you want to survive this long and perilous detour into the night of your soul.

Such a strange game

Posted on 2014-05-22 07:03:36 byzuhutay's avatarzuhutay:

This cockroach simulator is not what I would call an enjoyable game on which you will spend hours. But you will enjoy it as a curiosity in terms of gameplay, graphics and concept. As such, with a unique yet disgusting charm of its own, this game should mark your experience as a player as it did for me. Thanks for the addition.

Unique surreal atmosphere

What is great about this title is you can tell the game-makers really loved what they were doing. They want us to love it, too. This isn't some corporate "Call of Duty 27" that looks to demographics. It is an idea people had and worked hard and had fun bringing into fruition.
At it's heart, it is rather simple. You are a cockroach (Why/how is the McGuffin). You need to figureread more out how to traverse the scene from Entrance to Exit. A maze with obstetrical and things to do, basically.
But it does it so well! It is fun to pick this up every once in a while over the years just loose yourself in your Journey of a Roach. Because, like Myst, you have to put yourself into the position and into the environment ... and you do.
Immersion done right.
Plus, it is not said on here, but the "redux" part is the version that was made with improvements like MYST masterpiece edition. The graphics were good in the original and they are even better in the redux version. Therefore the game holds up over time.
But, don't get this game thinking you will have hours to play it or ridiculous challenges. It is very accessible. It is not a breeze but it is not meant to be hard. I was challenged some times for just a moment, sometimes longer, but the magic is that you are never frustrated you never rage-quit! Just have fun, it's only a game!

Different type of adventure

Definition of true hidden gem. Bad Mojo is a little adventure that takes you through the horrors of not so well maintained bar. Simple and easy to learn controls combined with different types of obstacles in cockroach's journey making Bad Mojo a unforgettable experience, especially if you always wanted to see the world from really detailed perspective of a small insect.
